    Hello.

    Can anybody explain how to install WebOS SDK on Ubuntu 11.04? The SDK is supporting VirtualBox 3.x only, but Ubuntu has VirtualBox 4.x in their repos.
    So, how to install old virtualbox on Ubuntu 11.04?

    You need to use the Ubuntu Software Center to remove VirtualBox 4. Then go to Virtual Box's website and download the proper old version of virtual box (for Ubuntu, a .deb version). Follow the instructions on how to install (if they don't have those instructions: Ubuntu Desktop Guide - Install/uninstall .deb files ).

    FWIW, the palm emulator images work fine with VirtualBox 4, it's just the palm cli scripts that don't work. Just manually load the images from the SDK install directory into VirtualBox.

    command-line-interface. It's the commands like palm-emulator, etc.

    Most Windows users probably just double-click 'palm-emulator' in the folder the SDK made on your desktop, or click on the link in the start menu. That link just opens the Command-Prompt and runs a script. For everyone else, when you type palm-emulator into the Command-Line-Interface(bash, windows command prompt) you're running a script that ask you what emulator you want to run, imports the desired disk image into a VirtualBox machine and runs it. VirtualBox 4 takes different command-line arguments then 3.x does, and that's why the SDK requires a 3.x version, because they *still haven't re-written the scripts to use the new command-line interface for VirtualBox.

    If you install a 3.x VirtualBox, then run all the different emulators(Pre/Pixi/TouchPad) once, they should now be imported into VirtualBox(i.e. you see them listed when you run VirtualBox from the start/whatever menu). Once they're all there, you can then safely upgrade your VirtualBox to 4.x you'll just have to run the emulators from the VirtualBox interface instead of the palm-emulator command.

    Alternatively, if you're comfortable with VirtualBox, you can import the virtual machines manually and bypass the 'run each emulator from the palm-emulator menu once' step.
